Does both the model have same core specification or do they show any major difference? take a look at the comparison table below



The QX100 and RX100M2 shares same sensor and lens, BUT the IMAGE PROCESSOR IS DIFFERENT. Sony didn’t clearly mention the type of image processor used in the newly announced QX100 smart lens.

Due to different / Slow image processor we get
1. LOW ISO Range (Unable to process / filter image file with high noise)
2. No Continuous burst mode
3. Limited Video recording capabilities (1440 X 1080)
4. Low shutter range

Other major difference that you will notice is

1. You can pair your QX100 Lens or RX100M2 camera with any iOS and Android based Smartphone.
2. Use your smartphone display to shoot images / can also be used uncoupled from your smartphone. Hold the camera / lens in one hand and your phone in the other,

Why QX100 is better?
1. More Compact size for shooting make this lens a excellent street shooter.
2. Low cost – QX100 is available at $499 / RX100 M2 available at $748.

Verdict: Even if the image processor is different we won’t see any major difference in image quality (probably upto ISO 3200), Since both of them shares same lens and sensor, the QX100 is definitely a major upgrade of your smartphone camera and highly recommended for smartphone users.

but if we look at the overall specification comparison between QX100 and RX100 M2, its’ no doubt that RX100 is better than QX100, Professional photographers may miss the RAW file and manual modes in the new QX100 smart lens, they can wait for the next version QX100 (Sony QX200),  or they can but RX100 M2 camera.
